Posted in IGNATIAN/JESUIT SJ- Reflections, Jesuit Saints and more, SAINT of the DAY

Feast of all the Saints and Blesseds of the Society of Jesus

Today, 5 November, is the feast of all All Saints and Blesseds of the Society of Jesus.
Together with the global Society of Jesus, let us remember the countless Jesuits who have given of themselves wholeheartedly, not for their own glory but for God’s.   Whether the names of the Saints and Blessed are known to many or only a few, whether official or not, today is a day when we give thanks to God for the lives of countless men who have humbly sought God in all things.   We all have our favourite Jesuit Saint, I have many and am constantly adding to them.FEAST OF ALL JESUIT SAINTS & BLESSEDS - 5 NOV NO 2

You have called us to be His companions
and to engage in the crucial struggle of our time,
the struggle for faith, justice and love.
Bring to completion in us,
the work You began in Ignatius
and so many of his followers.
Place us with Your Son, as You placed them
and take us under the banner of the Cross,
to serve Him alone and His Church.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.

Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. "For the saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and bless you 🙏
